Singapore Colonial Style

Great design should always make the mind travel, and the whimsical Arts & Crafts designs found in Singapore's famous black and white houses remain as inspirational today as they did in the early twentieth century. This new and updated collection showcases over 23 buildings, from Raffles Hotel, the High Commissioner's residence and airbase camps to private houses that have not been photographed before. Inside, a dazzling cornucopia of styles, in which modern art, period antiques and contemporary furniture are arranged together, provide rich source material for the East meets West design enthusiast.



Rattan collection 

Our furniture has been beautifully crafted with meticulous care by skilled artisans. Rattan is a natural material and each piece is unique, handmade and hand-finished which means there may be variations in weaving, texture and finish.


Care tips:

  • Clean gently. Dust regularly with a soft cloth
  • Never use hard chemical cleaners or abrasive creams
  • Keep dry. If it does become wet, try to dry outdoors in the sun to allow the natural material to return to its shape 
  • Treat mildew at once. If mildew forms, use a strong bleach solution carefully to clean affected areas then dry immediately outdoors
  • You can vacuum rattan furniture with the brush attachment
  • Lift carefully rather than dragging when moving to avoid splitting of the natural fibres 
  • Rattan needs some humidity. Keep away from severe heat which could warp the natural plant fibres


Painted Lacquer Collection 

Our water-based top coat finishes are non-yellowing and have scratch, stain and sun-resistant qualities

Care tips:

  • Avoid strong direct sunlight which can lead to fading
  • Keep dry. Use coasters and desk pads to protect the top surface from marks, spills, scratches and wear
  • Wipe spills immediately to prevent lacklustre appearance or cracking
  • Avoid putting heavy items on top. Use a protective mat under decorative pieces 
  • Dust regularly with a soft clean cloth or feather duster to prevent build up, which can be difficult to remove and affect the lustre

Cleaning tips:

  1. Put a teaspoon of mild soap in a gallon of warm water
  2. Dip a soft cloth and wring out excess water ensuring cloth is only damp – not wet
  3. Use gentle downward strokes (not circular motions) when wiping the furniture 
  4. Avoid cleaning products with hard chemicals – especially ammonia and bleach
  5. Dry the furniture with a soft dry cloth which is not made from any harmful materials that could scratch the lacquer surface
